T-Meter Title | Year
B+ 76% Small Town Crime (2018) As writers, the Nelms brothers have crafted a comedic crime narrative most akin to the Coen Brothers or Shane Black. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

C 63% Fits and Starts (2017) Fits and Starts sometimes seems unable to handle character, story, and motivation at the same time. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

91% The Disaster Artist (2017) It's a hilarious master class in self-referentiality, as well as an affectionate and reverential tribute to Tommy Wiseau and his mad creation. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

C- 43% Song to Song (2017) Malick's camera was once drawn to the sky, as the light from above plays on the leaves. With Song to Song, he's simply seeking a backstage pass to hang with the cool kids. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

A- 86% A Monster Calls (2017) With A Monster Calls, however, J.A. Bayona displays the knowledge, assurance, and wit of a filmmaker truly coming into his own. Entertaining, tonally impeccable, and heartbreaking, this is a monster movie with a very human heart. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

B 77% Split (2017) Split is one further step for Shyamalan on the road to cinematic redemption. We can only hope he continues to work at this level of production. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

C 57% Phantasm: Ravager (2016) Phantasm: Ravager will disappoint the uninitiated, but those who are loyal will find enough to love. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

D+ 37% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows comes off as less a film and more a grouping of shortcuts to our collective cinematic and cultural unconscious. This time, you don't need to turn off the TV, you just don't have to go. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

B+ 95% Hunter Gatherer (2016) Hunter Gatherer is that rare film that sneaks around the corner and smashes headlong into the viewer. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2016
C+ 60% War on Everyone (2017) The influence of the buddy comedies of Shane Black is obvious, but the film never reaches the heights of a film like Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang. War on Everyone is always funny, but it could have been so much more. - Consequence of Sound EDIT

C- 88% Don't Breathe (2016) Alvarez's Evil Dead left many wondering what this visually talented director would do next. Inconsistent and offensive, Don't Breathe is not the follow-up many will have wanted. - Consequence of Sound EDIT
